Details

The Fortress Marine Anchors are precision-machined from an aluminum alloy as strong as steel but only half the weight. Made to last years, the anchors are durable, rustproof and corrosion resistant. The sharper, dull-edge steel anchors will set faster and penetrate deeper into common sea bottoms for incredible holding power, and dramatically increase holding power in problem soft mud bottoms. 

 

Years of research and development, high-tech materials and manufacturing, and thousands of real world tests assure high performance, quality, and value. All Fortress Marine Anchors feature Mud Palms designed to help the anchor set faster in any type of sea bottom. The Mud Palms are a set of plates that bolt on the crown of the anchor. They create a lift to the crown of the anchor, causing the flukes to point more directly to the seabed and help set the anchor faster and more accurately. The Marine Anchors can be reassembled from the normal 32° angle to a 45° angle to increase holding power in soft mud bottoms.

 

Boat size recommendations are for boats of average windage and proportions in 30 knots of wind, average bottom conditions, and moderate protection from open seas. There are eight Fortress Anchors to choose from, ranging in sizes and capable of anchoring boats between 16 and 150 feet. Storage is easy as the anchors can be disassembled and placed in a stowaway bag for portability.

Army Corps of Engineers Protects River Wildlife

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.

Researchers Track Glacial Meltwater On Its Surprising Journey

While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.

Ice Fishing With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.
